The scheme is aiming to help cut the cost of energy bills for even more families in a new plan announced by Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey.



The Newry/Armagh MLA says, “It’s welcome news that Minister Deirdre Hargey will help cut the cost of energy bills and heating homes by opening up the Affordable Warmth Scheme to even more people. 

“That means investing in homes to cut costs for people through the installation of new heating systems, insulation and window replacements where needed.  

“This will help even more workers and families struggling to pay heating and electricity bills while also tackling energy poverty.  



“Changes to the scheme will start on 1 July and will support thousands of working and low-income families and the most vulnerable in our communities,” the Newry MLA adds.
